Your donation will help keep the St. Andrew’s Foundation continue to make a difference in the life of a senior.
Will: Making a small change in your Will can make a big change in the life of a local senior. After looking after your family and friends, you may wish to leave a gift to St. Andrew’s Residence Foundation. If you want to leave a gift, but have already prepared your Will, there are two simple ways to donate:
i. Make a new Will – This is the simplest way. You can stipulate a fixed number of dollars or a percentage (Example: $5,000 or 1%). Once a new Will is prepared, any Wills written previously are void. It is best to do this with a professional advisor, such as a lawyer that you trust.
ii. Amend your existing Will – Through a codicil, you can change a Will that is already made. We again advise that you work with a trusted legal expert to amend any existing will.
Insurance Policy: By taking out a small insurance policy and making St. Andrew’s Residence Foundation the beneficiary, you can donate through your estate without affecting the amount left for friends and family. Talk to a trusted insurance advisor to find out more.
Matching Donations from your Funeral: Matching donations collected from friends and family at your funeral and from your obituary can be a thoughtful way to show how much you support a specific charity. You can ask that in lieu of flowers, donations are made to St. Andrew’s Residence Foundation. (Example: $1000 is collected and your estate matches that with a $1000 donation, for a generous $2000 total donation.)
